Why the adj. "Kleine" has the -e. If "huis" is a "het" word and… the noun is preceded by a indefinite article?

"kleine" does not refer to the house, it refers to "tuin", which is a de-word. If the indefinite article ”een" comes before a de-word in the singular, then the adjective gets the -e ending.
